Highly Academic Environment

Columbia High School provides a rigorous academic program while promoting personal growth for all students. The small number of students in each class working with our talented teaching staff provides the opportunity for all students regardless of language proficiency to reach their full academic potential and develop into confident global citizens. Our graduates are fully prepared to enter universities of their choice in Japan, United States, Canada and throughout the English speaking world. Our ultimate goal is not only to engage, support and challenge each student to reach his or her maximum potential, but to also equip them with a love of learning, an appreciation and tolerance for others, and a confidence that they are becoming life-long learners with the academic and study and learning skills to guarantee a successful future. Let your 21st century educational journey begin at Columbia.
